Next Tuesday - 16th - will be our last day shooting indoors - we will be outside after that - both Tuesdays and Thursday's
However......... at some point - likely early June - we will be moved off our field as they are digging it up to improve the drainage.
We will not be allowed back on until summer season of 2021 whilst the grass recovers - footballers have been kicked off too !
But - panic not - Phil and I went out on Friday with the man from the council to view the facilities at Monkmoor Recreation Centre.
There is ample parking and a small store where we can move enough bosses etc to keep us going this season and next summer - a few steps to negotiate the bosses down but should not be a problem - the rest of the field is nice and flat !
There are also toilets and a member of staff on duty - and it's still free for us to use - positively luxurious facilities !
If you google it there are pictures and address details on the council website - if anyone has any major objections we can discuss further over the next few weeks but we need to confirm with the council fairly soon.
Other alternatives lack storage facilities or will cost us....

2017 - 2018 Indoor Competition Results
Shropshire Archery Society:
A team - 3 wins out of 5
B team - 4 wins out of 5 (and okay 1 was a 'bye' round and 2 other wins were when the opponents did not register a score - but as they say you've got to be in it to win it....!)
British Archery Postal League:
A team - 5 wins out of 5 !
B team - 4 wins out of 5
C team - 3 wins out of 5 - this division got complicated - we ended up having to adjust all our scores as we were over the threshold of the division score -
but so were some of the other teams in this round - so it's hard to tell how well we actually did.
Final BA division scores are always late coming out but hopefully we'll move up a few leagues based on this seasons scores
West Midlands League
we don't get individual round scores submitted but once we have the final standings I send these out as well.
Thank you to all who took part and if anyone wants further explanation of how these competitions all work
I will have hard copies of the results with me during the outdoor season and will happily explain how it all works !
